Plan Options for the 2020-2021 Academic Year

No matter who you are or how you eat, you can find a meal plan that works best for your schedule and lifestyle. All currently enrolled students are welcome to join our dining plans at the same low prices. All dining purchases on a meal plan are tax-free, which means you enjoy daily sales tax savings on every transaction when compared with using cash or credit cards! 

Each meal plan loads your student ID card with a specific number of points based on the plan that you choose. You can visit any of our dining locations and swipe your student ID card to pay for your meal. Your meal plan is just like a debit card, and your balance will decrease with each purchase that you make. 

To increase any meal plan send an email to the housing office (housing@pepperdine.edu) from your Pepperdine email account.
